Many women are doing this after giving birth. Would you save your placenta AND make a dish out of it to eat? Why or why not? For those that have, what does it taste like?

  • I have heard of that... Personally, I wouldn't want to eat one of my own organs. That's a little too "Hannibal" for me.
    I wouldn't mind keeping mine & planting a tree with it though :)
